i don't know if anyone googled it but here is the skinny on the "black eggs"

Owakudani, meaning the Great Boiling Valley, is located in the mountain town of Hakone. One can take an aerial tram up to the hot springs, or walk up the 1 km path. On clear days either route delivers spectacular views of the ominous Mt. Fuji.
Once the springs are reached, kuro-tamago, or black eggs, can be purchased five at a time. The eggs are ordinary chicken eggs but the shell turns black due to being boiled in the hot sulfur spring. Local tradition holds that for each black egg eaten, seven years is added to one's life. However, some say that eating more than two is not recommended.
The valley is sometimes referred to as "The Death Valley" by locals. Some 3000 years ago Mount Hakone erupted leaving the hot spring filled crater. All along the path to the egg vendor are active sulfuric geysers, which can be hazardous at times. The area is prone to landslides due to the constant volcanic activity. In potentially unsafe conditions, the walkways to the egg boiling springs may be closed.

Who would have thought eh.

i can't wait to win the Lottery and do the circuit, El Hierro, Hakone, Iceland ........... heaps of other places
After a month looking at the Hakone map every day, I almost know it like my own neighborhood.
Too bad about the tourist's though, I bet you have to queue for your black eggs, I hate queue's.

The product may look something like this:

A comparison pie might look like this:

The only problem is that this is HUGELY processor intensive. It has all 4 cores on my computer banging away full throttle for over a minute to produce on of the Weekly Geophysical Report sets so it may kill a smaller PC stone dead so the question is, should I include it anyway?

Those 3D Pies are handy for quick understanding of what went on.
I have found 3D graphing chews up a lot of memory. That is one reason I went back to the flat pie with just slightly rounded edges for an "almost 3D" effect.
I was experimenting with Bar Graphs today (raining again!), an "advance" on the Icelandic style of timeline graph.
The Iceland style uses "error bars" to get the line dropdown from the marker on the graph.
Here I have widened the error bar itself and mucked around with the angle of the fill to get 3D.
Trouble is once I have created the graph the Excel file won't save it because of "errors", "corruption" etc

So if I close it, then reopen it, the graph is not there.
Its a one off thing, create it, screenshot it, then it's gone.
Adding Labels sends my laptop into a spin. I think it is because I am using Excel2010 spreadsheets on a Excel2007 program.

GREENE COUNTY - AL - You don't hear this too often in Alabama, but the United States Geographical Survey reports an earthquake in Greene County Saturday afternoon. It happened at 1:09 p.m. near Eutaw.

USGS reports the quake at a magnitude 3.0. According to the USGS site, that means the earthquake can be felt, but rarely causes damage. At that magnitude, indoor object might noticeably shake.

Some people told us on Twitter and Facebook, they felt it all the way in Northport.

bumped up by the USGS conversion to MW.

Bit of activity in Hokaiddo too that I missed a few days back, a M5.0, I just noticed the clump of aftershocks.

I like the pies.

However I can understand what you said about the stress it puts on your computer system.

Nobody need to be blowing up there computers for data.

Been working on NZ M5+ earthquake pages, replacing the thumbnails on the Home page with Energy Pie Graphs and I have upgraded a few feature events along the way, specifically 2007 Gisborne, 2009 Dusky Sound, and 2003 Secretary Island major events, replacing the static aftershock images with NZ Topo Interactive Maps.
I also dragged the details of 2015's major events over from my NZ Daily Blog into the 2015 page.
Seems to work OK, a lot depends on what your ISP loading is like at the time you open the page, for example 2003 has 3,660 icons on the 3rd map, when I posted it I couldn't get it to work properly, half the Icons defaulted to Google Blue icons and one panel of icons wouldn't show at all. Then I tried a couple of hours later and its all there.
I created a couple of new Timeline graphs too.
This Blog is one of my most popular (41,719 visitors), Belgium is the 2nd most popular source of visitors with 12,086, after NZ 24,120, USA only 2,150.
Been going for a while, I started it in 2010.
Disregard the dates of the page posts, I have manipulated those so I can get each year in sequence.
Quite a few more years to upgrade yet, 2013, 2010, 2011 bring in the Canterbury stuff from Wordpress. I did some prior work on the 1990's, have lost the original data, so have to download that again to create the active maps.
on the to-do list;
1995 East Cape 7.0
1994 Arthurs Pass 6.7
1993 Secretary Is. 6.8
1993 Ormond 6.3
1992 Wairau 6.8
1992 Weber 4
1991 Hawks Crag 1,2 & 3
1990 Weber 1,2 & 3
1990 Lake Tennyson 5.8
1989 Fiordland 6.1
1988 Irene River 6.1
1987 Edgecumbe 6.1
1984 Ngatoro Basin Swarm
1968 Inangahua 7.1
and heaps more back to 1840

After earthquake Mw 6.1 near Antofagasta is amazing to see that seismic zone in 3D!

What do you think?
Is good?

108 visitors on my japanearthquakes yesterday, must have come looking for this quake.
Good to know it comes up on the search's now.
Unfortunately I was unable to supply a map for the 8th Jun UTC until this morning, as JMA don't release the reviewed data until a few days later.
97 visitors since this morning, so looks like some of them came back again.
All good

Fox Creek.
Ironic, I was just reading the Edmonton Journal this morning on line, thinking, geez nothing exciting ever happens there.
Just had a look on Google Earth, could be related to Fracking, the whole area is littered with Pads like they have down in Oaklahoma

Yeah, my suspicions confirmed by Alberta Energy Regulator (AER) and AGS in the Edmonton Journal today. Seems its been happening for a while. I hadn't really kept an eye on Alberta since my visit last year.

AER and the Alberta Geological Survey believed the two January earthquakes may have been associated with multistage hydraulic fracturing.
